Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run in Baltimore on April 2 that left a man dead, city police said.
A 16-year-old boy who was arrested on the day of the incident was charged with first-degree murder and has remained in custody since, police said.
Police said they apprehended a second 16-year-old boy on Monday and a 13-year-old female on Wednesday. The second male was charged as an adult with first-degree murder and is currently being held in Central Booking, police said.
The female has been charged with first-degree murder, police said. They said she has been charged as a juvenile.
According to police, an officer observed the three teenagers assaulting the victim, Fabian Mendez, 41, in the 100 block of North Conkling Street at about 5 a.m. April 2.
The suspects then entered a blue sedan owned by Mendez and sped away, police said.
As the suspects drove off, the driver struck Mendez with the vehicle, police said. Mendez was dragged several blocks, causing severe injuries.
The driver of the sedan then crashed into another vehicle and fled on foot, police said. They said one suspect was apprehended after a brief foot chase. Police did not say how the other two suspects escaped.
Mendez was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital and pronounced dead by medical personnel shortly after arrival.
The second 16-year-old male and the 13-year-old female are being held until their trial dates, police said.
